Man, I have felt almost sick today from being so sleepless these past few nights. My nap helped a little, but after snacktime and blogging, I felt kind of sick. I peeked outside at the gorgeous day and decided to go on a walk. “Real” exercise was out of the question – in fact I haven’t officially worked out since Thursday! When I’m sick or really low on sleep, rest always get priority. I have been on my feet a lot, however.
So a walk was just what the doctor ordered
I took Better Homes & Gardens with me and walked for an hour. I felt so much better!!
Once home Matt and I put together a simple dinner – featuring garden greens. Our family is growing tall!
We sauteed the greens along with a slice of bacon
And served them with egg + toast
Nine Grain with butter
Beverage du jour
I didn’t really think I was going to love these – I thought they’d be really dry and crispy but they were DOUGHY!! My favorite texture. Barely baked and so moist. And of course the caramel was fabulous. I wish I had more!!
While Matt put together dinner, I made a lentil salad to pack for our lunch a few days this week. I love chilled salads that are bean or grain based with chopped veggies and a few fun mixins
- 2 cups green lentils, cooked (these hold their shape better than brown or red)
- 1/2 cucumber, chopped
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 5 small radishes, sliced
- 2 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes in oil
- 1 tsp herb salt
- 2 tbsp toasted pecans
- 1 slice bacon, crisped (optional)
- 1/3 cup Dr. Pete’s Lemon Pear dressing [also in OpenSky bundle] (Or you could use a mix of dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic and a bit of mayo
- Cook lentils
- Cook bacon, chop
- Chop veggies
- Toast pecans
- Mix together
- Pour on dressing
- Portion into tupperware for busy weekday lunches
HOPING for a good nite!
